    Effective call blocker!

    Bought these to try and put an end to tiresome automated calls after signing up to TPS seemed to do nothing. And since setting them up (which consisted of plugging them in) we haven;t been bothered by a single sales call!nnThe settings for "Call Guardian" on can be altered but the basic settings do the job fine. Probably worth noting that the call blocking features will only work if you have Caller ID. nnAll in all a cracking set of home phones, which were bought for one purpose and are good quality for everything else: sound quality, range, phonebook sharing. Highly recommend!

    BT 8600

    Brilliant phones, not one nuisance call since plugging them in. The number of cold callers still shows up as a missed call but you don't know it's happening. Good features. The handset sharing is a good feature which should have been standard by now. I always used to ad a contact on one phone then try to dial them from the other phone! Very annoying. Also if you come in and check your missed calls then go upstairs and check the other phone it always annoyed me that it said you have missed calls. You don't get that on these phones as they update on both phones what you do. Simple but useful feature.

    Disappointing

    Have been using these for over a month now and have to say I'm very disappointed in the quality. They were purchased to replace an old Panasonic set, unfortunately the sound quality of these BT phones is terrible. Not only is the outgoing volume far too low so people are struggling to hear you even with the volume turned to maximum but the tinny feedback when the other person speaks is extremely poor. Won't be buying BT again....

    Terrible! DO NOT BUY

    One of the worst purchases I have ever made. Found it extremely difficult to set-up as the instructions which came with the telephone are difficult to follow. Had to call the BT help line twice and they were utterly useless. Got on better with ligo who at least tried to help. The call blocker would work on every single call which I received even though I had saved friends and family as VIP. In the end my friends and family stopped calling me because it was so difficult to get through, and I wasn’t able to see who’d called because the system said NO NUMBER, which it shows for every single call. After my second call to ligo it was concluded there must be a fault with it. Returns process was find. I would deal with ligo again bt will never be buying a BT phone again!!! So disappointing because if this phone had worked as it was supposed to then it would have been perfect….

    Great phone, great service

    We bought this as it was the latest call blocking phone from BT and we have been inundated with cold calls and nothing else has worked. Did a lot of research online before ordering and spoke with a lovely advisor at ligo who was very patient and answered all of my questions (proper good old fashioned customer service – so nice to be able to talk to another human). Delivery was fast, arrived the following day and since setting up the phone (which was as easy as pie) we haven’t had a single nuisance call. Happy days – would highly recommend!

    Good effective and cheap

    Had this phone over a year now and no complaints at all. It does the job that i bought it for as in a call blocker.Compare this phone with other foreign ones and it is relatively cheap.

    Not as good as expected

    Nice phones, like it can block unwanted calls, thought it might have had more features, quite basic

    Very poor

    They have been replaced twice already because they were faulty. Ligo have very kindly arranged for this set to be exchanged with something by Gigaset....fingers crossed this is the end to this sorry saga.

    Bit complicated

    I had trouble working out how to set them up. (Not the phones fault). They work fine but I would have preferred something less complicated.

    Good phones. Bought for the call blocking features and works well. Wasn't terribly difficult to set up.
